Centre Jason Spezza is back on the ice with the Senators.

Spezza, who has missed 11 games with a knee injury, was skating on a line with Denis Hamel and Brian McGrattan at the team's practice today. Neither Mike Fisher (knee) or Mike Comrie (upper body soreness) skated.

It's the first time Spezza has practised with the club since suffering the injury on Dec. 21.

It's not yet known how soon he might be able to return to the lineup, but the earliest possible date would seem to be Saturday when the Sens battle Boston.

The Senators are home to play the Washington Capitals on Tuesday at Scotiabank Place.
